For five innings, New York did little against Carrasco, who failed to get out of the second in his previous start.
But the Yankees finally got something going in the sixth, and tied it 1-all on Chase Headley's sacrifice fly before loading the bases on a double and two walks - one an intentional pass to Judge.
Ellsbury sent a deep drive that outfielder Abraham Almonte seemed to track while battling the sun. But as he neared the wall, Almonte, who returned from the minors on Saturday, didn't extend his glove and braced for impact well shy of the wall as the ball bounced off its base, allowing three runs to score.
Carrasco was lifted and Ronald Torreyes hit a run-scoring single off Bryan Shaw to cap New York's outburst.
A performance like Bartolo Colon's hasn't occurred in more than 25 years. At 44 years and 72 days, Colon is the oldest AL player to win a complete game since Nolan Ryan (45 years and 155 days) on July 4, 1992. He threw 106 pitches, 78 for strikes. He has won games with 10 different teams, trailing the major league record of 11 set by LaTroy Hawkins, Mike Morgan and Ron Villone.
.......... muses about ballgames and life in Las Vegas - particularly the long hours spent in the casino sports book surrounded by sexy cocktail waitresses, degenerate horse players, the Whale Man's entourage ....and the sheer terror of having Under 7 with 5 runs already on the board by the fourth inning".
